That Was Probably Hard To Remember


Pretty funny moment (relatively speaking) in the trial of the Fort Worth guy who was sentenced to life for shooting, but not killing, a police officer. His momma was called to the stand during the punishment phase and asked by the defendant's lawyer if there had been any acts of violence between her and the defendant's father (the "he's the product of bad parents" defense).   She quickly said, "No."  Then a couple of seconds later a light bulb came on and she recalled there was that one time. You know, the time she shot him. Video.
